5 Video Games That Bring Out the Athlete In You

Not everyone can be a star NFL quarterback. But, thanks to the latest video games, they can play one.

With the new generation of gaming consoles, anyone can be a superstar from the comfort of their couch.

Here are the five best video games to bring out the athlete in gamers.

5 Great Sports Video Games

1. Madden 18

When people turn on the TV every Sunday, they only see a three-hour snippet into player’s lives. They don’t see the hard work and preparation that went into getting them there.

With Madden 18, players get the chance to see everything that goes into preparing an athlete for their NFL career.

In Longshot mode, players step into the shoes of a top-rated high school quarterback. Players deal with the high expectations that go with the position.

There’s also Franchise mode, where players go through weekly practices and make decisions that determine their team’s success throughout the season.

Gamers can take on the responsibility of Pete Carroll, or play as Kam Chancellor if they just want to hit someone really hard.

Imagine a robot from Titanfall 2 on a football field. That’s Kam Chancellor in a nutshell.

Winning a Superbowl as a player or coach requires dedication, strategy, and lightning quick reflexes. Madden 18 allows gamers to see if they can handle the pressure.

2. NBA 2k18

Ever wonder what it would be like to go head to head against Lebron James or Steph Curry?

How does signing a 170 million, 4-year contract sound?

Most people will never know what it feels like to an NBA superstar, but NBA 2k gives everyone the opportunity to have a career in the league.

Gamers can create an athlete, picking whatever position they prefer and playing through college and the NBA.

Players use skill points to upgrade their created athlete. The athlete goes through an entire career, including contract negotiations, free agency, and the NBA draft.

Any basketball fanatic can live out the NBA fantasy!

3. MLB The Show

With the playoffs underway, there are 26 fan bases left to dream about next year and wait for opening day.

Instead of waiting, players can take their team to the promised land.

There are two options: Create a player to guide through the minor leagues and into the bigs, or manage a team and go to the top.

Either way, leading a team to the promised land will get the athletic juices flowing.

4. FIFA 18

Football (soccer for American lads) is the most popular sport on the planet, with millions of kids dreaming of making it big.

In The Journey mode, players guide a hopeful through the second season of his career, making decisions on and off the pitch that will impact his life.

This game is all about the intersection of performance and choice. Players who want to know what it’s like to play the beautiful game will fall in love with FIFA.

There’s a reason it’s on the list of best-selling video games every year.

5. Forza Motorsport 7

The best way to talk about this game is with a story.

Susan gets home from a day at the beach. She’s been flying kites with other people she found on

After sitting on the couch, Susan realizes there is nothing on television. Out of nowhere, an idea pops into her head: She wants to drive suped-up cars at top speed down a rainy track.

Forza Motorsport 7 saves Sue’s day.

The beautiful part about this game is how realistic the driving experience is. Windshield wipers shake from the wind. Puddles slow cars down and throw off their balance.

Any gamer that wants to race like a pro needs this game.

Gamers Live The Best Lives

The best part about video games is the unlimited opportunity they offer.

Have nothing to do on a Saturday night? Pop Fallout 4 into the Xbox and see what life is like with nothing but a dog, some radroach meat, and a massive amount of radiation.

There are endless possibilities, which is why gamers need endless information.
